Scientific Overview

We will offer tutorials in the first week of the program, to provide an introduction to several major research topics in modern Discrete Mathematics. These topics include Probabilistic Methods, Extremal Problems for Graphs and Set Systems, Ramsey Theory, Additive Number Theory, Combinatorial Geometry, Discrete Harmonic Analysis and more.

The goal is to familiarize the prospective participants with the techniques which were developed in Combinatorics in the last few decades.

Registration for tutorials is free, to encourage broad participation.
